Choose a job you're good at, Learn to love it, Never have to work a day in your life AND make good money doing it.

Many people may agree with this, but honestly, wouldn't that just make what you love feel like work after awhile? It's not all fun, it can be stressful, and having your hobby feel like working isn't exactly appealing to me.

Doesn't work that way.

Yes, yes it does.

Does not mean though that it's better to take a job that you don't enjoy. But when you apply work to a hobby, it will eventually make the hobby less enjoyable.

Oh, let's say that your hobby is making model cars. You normally spend a week building these model cars in your spare time, and when you're done you put them on display on a shelf.

Now, let's say that you get a job making model cars later on. You now have to build two model cars a day, write a report, deal with other employees, etc. Is it still fun? Yes, you're still doing your hobby. But it will degrade in enjoyability over time.

The 'job' is not fun.

The 'hobby' still is.

Case-in-point... me and my job.

I work with a bunch of cowardly, mediocre ******** , and despite all the stuff i have to do to interface with their daily fail-flow (workflow... get it?), i still like the parts of my job that I find fun.

ODDLY, it like the 'good' parts of my job (coding, investigating, etc) MORE AND MORE every day, which is really weird because I dislike the other parts of the job more and more every day as well.

Even better: I'm almost SO pissed with the 'other parts' that I'm considering leaving this very cushy job... But i came into this job thinking the things that i now find to be fun would be boring... instead they became hobbies, and i like them more every day!

Just trying to illustrate the point that you can't think of 'a job' as 'One Big Thingy To Classify As Good Or Bad'. You can wholly enjoy one part of it and despise another, hobby or otherwise.

Creating a social system based on hierarchical propriety doesn't really match up with "do what you love" so I'm calling caramel-covered horse **** on this one

Lets start a "What I aspire to be" thread.

I plan to become a historian and open a museum of peculiar and strange things, much like Robert Ripley. There are many strange and fascinating things in the world, I'd love for everyone to see the wonders it has to offer. Furthermore, we must never forget what created and built our race and civilization. We owe the people who got us where we are that much. Nikola Tesla, Leonardo Da Vinci, even ******* Hitler, all of them should not be forgotten.

What's that supposed to mean?
User avatar #70 to #67 - iamkagji (03/28/2013) [-]
I grew up with horrific nightmare and violent impulses. I was born to fight, despite my IQ of 183. I have no other calling. Surprisingly, I have never been diagnosed with anything other than a temper, despite my honest answering of countless tests and neurochemical scans.
#72 to #70 - swagbot (03/28/2013) [-]
Not trying to be mean, just stating my observations here:

Sounds like you have a pathological neurosis, not an 'aspiration'.
User avatar #74 to #72 - iamkagji (03/28/2013) [-]
Nah, something like that would show up on my scans. I have great impulse control, have never been in jail for anything other than self defense on school property, and have incredibly bad reactions to any psychoactive. My neurotransmitters are perfectly fine, my electrochemical balance is perfect, and I am perfectly capable of socializing normally. I am just angry, tormented and violent. I have no reason for why I am the way I am. I have grown to accept it as fact. If this were a different time I would have been trained as a child and made a general.
#75 to #74 - swagbot (03/28/2013) [-]
I guess if your goal is satisfaction of your impulses, that is a fine way to live. That's not a way to live a productive life, though.

Not saying one or the other is objectively better - that's impossible to do as values are subjective. Just commenting for the possibility of noting a possible consequence of an upcoming life choice on the chance that the thought has not already occurred to you.

I want to be a Particle Physicist, but I can't afford college and I am not good enough with language to get a scholarship. Being a Marine serves two purposes: fulfilling my impulses and life-long dream and sending me to college to attempt my chosen career.
#77 to #76 - swagbot (03/28/2013) [-]
Isn't it weird that you can make a living Going To War, which is a completely non-productive endeavor? This world is ****** up because evil people want it to be so, and good people aren't putting in enough effort to counteract it.

The question is, will you allow those circumstances to modify such a fundamental piece of YOUR personality, and push you into a reality where you are forced to suppress the productive side of your soul, and/or make choices that you may severely regret?

My Mantra: I HATE most of this world. I refuse to bow to the things that I hate. I will bend as much of the world to my will as I can. If i am maimed, killed, or go insane in the process, at least I (and everyone around me) will know that i did so while acting in accordance with the my uncorrupted goals.

TL:DR, I would rather die than become like the destructive people who make this world ass and make it difficult for us to follow our true goals.

(There's a lot more behind that, and specific examples of things that I'm alluding to, but that's for later)

I'm off to bed. Good night.

A good father. That's pretty lame i guess, but I want to raise a kid, my kid, and have him or her be taught the values of integrity and not be a little **** like most kids.

have to argue with this one..I used to love driving; so I got jobs driving trucks. now it's a chore.

lesson being: pick what you love and figure out how to get paid for it..just not what you love to do MOST

I heard that the translations of what Confucius said were from really vague things with no context, and could've meant anything because of the complicated language it was in.

You know...

If you do something that you love...

As a job...

You will eventually become frustrated, and no longer love that thing.
